Colin Bruintjes grew up on the local golf course and still tries to squeeze in a round whenever he has time. But during the week he's usually hard at work at the office of his accounting firm where he's been since he first started the company in 1996.
Colin says working for himself has been a blessing. Entrepreneurship runs in his family so it wasn't a stretch for him to imagine starting his own business. He spent several years working in other accounting firms, but knew that starting his own business would be the way to achieve the goals that were most important to him in his life. Being a business owner, Colin says, has allowed him flexibility in his career and made it possible to give back to the community in ways he may not have otherwise been able.
Colin was born and raised in Smithers. He left for several years to pursue an education, but there was never a doubt that he would return to Smithers. Both his and his wife's family live in Smithers, and they are grateful to have such an extensive support system around them. Colin also has many connections in the community which made establishing his business easier. "People here are very friendly and supportive," Colin states. It's one of the things that he most appreciates about Smithers. But the outdoors is a very close second. In addition to golf, and since recently moving out to the country, Colin has taken up cross-country skiing in his backyard in the winter. In the fall he's often on the river fly-fishing.
